You see what Craigs car(green fox that went to the track with us) ran with simple mods. He is actually selling it as soon as we get back. He is out here with me also. Im sure he would give you a good price.

Talking U GUY'S R ALL TRIPPING ON MSLSD

With the AJE. K-member, a C-4 n a drive shaft, the swap is CHILDS PLAY, along side (have fun with the stock gauge cluster) if you care, but it's do-able with anolog to digital converter adapters n shi*. And this BS that its all expensive is complete and total garbage. A junk 460 will run U like 250 on a good day, 850 may bee on a bad day,
but you need a pre-72 for the C8VE heads out of a continental. Have the stock heads worked on, throw a set of forged pistons , stock rods, stock crank, two bolt main block, ford (PN M9424-H429) intake, an e-bay 850 carb some rockers and a flat tappet say 650 lift range cam ok, and your lookin at 600HP easy. Forget about all that BULL-SHI* u just read. Thanks

I like your spirit and old school would be fun. Like others said it wouldn't be very easy to do. For a junkyard motor you would want something early model with DOVE heads(1970ish) which I would think have all been crushed. I put a 429 (same as 460) into a 70 Mach 1 and parts were still in the junkyard but this was the 80's. That motor (385 series) never came in a 70 mustang(except the boss 429) so it was a swap. I used custom swap headers, oil filter adapter from a van, and boss 429 motor mounts. It wasn't so much of a stretch to put that motor into a 70 mustang since that body style came with FE series big blocks already. I used a 429 because back then they were plentiful and cheap and the 390's, 428's were not. Putting a big block into a s197 is a pretty big job and in the end it might not be what you want. I would think a 3V would be easier and still be a project. I'm from Daytona so I know emissions are not an issue so you could do all sorts of stuff and not have that worry.
